Events
• He was baptized on 27 Jun 1779 in Goshen, Orange County, New York, USA. 2865
• "The year one thousand seven hundred and eighty [1780] was the hard winter." 649
• The records of the First Religious Society of Homer, organized September 10, 1799, list among the signers Aaron Knapp; and among the members, Stephen Knapp who joined in 1800. Later it gives the baptism of two children of Stephen Knapp on May 1st, 1825. 16
• Goodwin: "During the year 1798, a very considerable accession was made by persons settling in various parts of the town, and more especially along the borders of East and West rivers.

"Stephen Knapp came in with his brother-in-law from Goshen, Orange Co., New York, to explore the country. [GET NAME] His father having been killed during the Revolutionary struggle by the Indians on the Delaware river, near the mouth of the Lackawaxen, left him to carve out his own fortune: and he sought this wild region of country for that laudable purpose. His mother, having some little means, which was placed in his care, a purchase was made through Judge Thompson, of lots 55 and 84. Returning to Goshen, he early made preparation for moving to Homer but circumstances over which he had no control delayed his departure until 1798. He came by the way of Poughkeepsie, Shonkunk, Kingston, head waters of Schoharie; followed down the river to Prattsville; thence to Harpersfield; crossed Wattles Ferry; thence to Oxford; thence to Solon, afterwards called Hatheway's Corners. Here he followed the Salt Road about two miles to Squire Bingham's; thence over the hills to Judge John Keep's; thence to Mr. Matthew's on lot 56; and thence to Hon. John Ballard's. Here Mr. Knapp and his friends remained for some time, during which period his brother Daniel purchased the farm of Captain Russell.

"Soon after this sale, Mr. Ballard located in the village. Mr. Rusell died with the small pox.

"Mr. Knapp is still living, a venerable relic of a former age. Neither marble nor fulsome epitaph will be necessary to perpetuate his memory."
• H.C. Smith's History of Cortland County gives more about Stephen and his family.

"Other considerable accessions were made to the population during the year 1798, many of whom settled along the two branches of the river. Stephen Knapp came in with this brother-in-law [William Lucas-?] from Goshen, Orange Co., N.Y., to make explorations. Knapp's father had been killed in the War of the Revolution, leaving him to make his own way in the world; for this laudable purpose he sought the wilderness country and purchased a large tract of land. Returning to Goshen he made preparations to permanently remove to his new possessions; but he was delayed until the year 1798. He came in by the way of Poughkeepsie, Kingston, the head waters of Schoharie county; followed down the river to Prattsville; thence to Harpersfield, crossing at Wattles's ferry; thence to Oxford; thence to Solon, where he took the Salt Road about two miles to 'Squire Bingham's; thence over the hills to Judge Keep's and thence to the house of John Ballard, where he remained some time. One hundred acres of the land bought by Mr. Knapp, which afterward constituted the homestead, was a portion of what is now the cemetery grounds. His house, a simple log cabin, stood where the "tool house" of the cemetery is now located. Two hundred acres were below the village and within the present boundaries of Cortlandville (on lot 55) on both sides of the river, and two hundred acres on lot 85, also in the town of Cortlandville. During the following winter after Mr. Knapp's location his mother, Hester Knapp, with her family consisting of Stephen, Daniel, James, Nathaniel and two daughters, Polly and Sally, came in over the route as above given. Stephen Knapp became a man of prominence and energy; one whose influence in bringing the wilderness under civilizing influence was permanent and important. During the earlier years of his life in Homer the broad valley of the Tioughnioga was covered with a dense forest, and it was easier for him to reach the lands on his lower tracts by following down the bed of the stream, than by making a journey through the wood. Mr. Knapp married Abigail Treat and was the grandfather of William O. Bunn, late editor of the Homer Republican, and deputy U.S. Internal Revenue collector, with headquarters at Syracuse. Mr. Knapp lived to the venerable age of eighty-four years, sixty-six of which were passed in the town of Homer.
"Daniel Knapp, older brother of Stephen, erected a dwelling house on the north part [2_192] of the farm and near the four corners of the road at the cemetery, which he opened afterward as a tavern and kept it as such for several years. The succeeding residents of this farm were Chauncey Keep, Mr. Dickson, and General Martin Keep, who brought the property about 1824 and resided there ten years, removing to Tompkins county. The farm has since been owned by Walter Jewett, and by Paris Barber, who sold the grounds of the cemetery to the association. With the exception of twenty acres on the east side of the road, the farm is now and has been for some time owned by Henry Dennison.
"A short distance up the river on the opposite side of the stream and near the foot of the hill is the location where Stephen Knapp resided for some years, now owned by Andrew Kingsbury. Aaron Knapp settled south of his brother Daniel, on the farm now owned by Allen Smith.
"Enos Stimson was from Monson, Mass., and settled on the site of the well known Schermerhorn residence in Homer village. He built a small house and hung out a tavern sign; but he was compelled to send his wife and children away thr following spring, on account of the ravages of the small-pox. They sojourned at the house of Aaron Knapp, where they were vaccinated."
2866
• Stephen Knapp arrived in Homer in Bef 1800. "While the names of all who came in after this date cannot probably be given, we can mention the following: Stephen Knapp, Daniel, Samuel and Gideon Hobart, Titus Stebbins, Samuel Hotchkiss, Dr. Lewis S. Owen, Deacon Noah Hitchcock, Zenas Lilly, Timothy Treat, Enos Stimson, William Lucas, Asahel Miner, Col. Benajah Tubbs, John and Richard Bishop. (Footnote: Several of these pioneers settled within the present limits of Cortlandville and became identified with that locality. See history of that town.) These pioneers all came into the town prior to 1800, and constituted the beginning of the new settlement. They were the men who suffered many and great hardships, privations and inconveniences while subduing the wilderness, all the details of which it is impossible at this late day to obtain. Those who followed during the first quarter of the 19th century also endured privations and made sacrifices that are little realized at the present day. They all possessed aggressive spirits and labored not for themselves alone, but for their children and future generations as well. For this life and purpose they abandoned the hearthstones of their boyhood days, the endearments of social ties, cultivated associations and the many luxuries common to older settlements." 1325
• Source?? "Stephen came with his brother-in-law from Goshen, his father having been killed in the Rev. War. Had 1100 acres of land in what was later Homer, N.Y., 400 acres in what is now Cortland. Timothy Treat from Berkshire, Mass. m. and had 8 children, the 3rd dau. m. Stephen. Stephen came to Homer in 1798. During the following winter his mother, Hester, his bros. Daniel, James and Nathaniel and sisters Polly and Sally came. In those days that section was in OnondagaCo. In 1808 Cortland Co. was set off. The towns of Homer, Virgil and Cortland were all Homer. Virgil was set off in 1804 and Cortland soon after. Stephen Knapp became a man of prominence and energy. He m. Abigail Treat. He lived to be 84, 66 yrs of which were passed in Homer. He was officer in the Regt. that was kept in training. He was charter member of the Masonic Lodge established in Homer in 1854."
• H.P. Smith's History of Cortland County also states: : "The family that first settled on any part of the ground now occupied by Homer village, was, from the best information now available, that of John House, who located in the northeastern part of the village…He was succeeded on his place of residence by Stephen Knapp, who had previously lived in a house at the foot of the hill, on the farm now owned by Andrew Kingsbury. Mr. Knapp was succeeded on the farm near the bridge by William Cummins, and he by Henry Woodward." 2867
• 1820 Census: 1820, Homer, Cortland County, New York, USA. 2814 Stephen was the head of household, also listed with him were: 1 male (0-9, probably Stephen D.); 1 male (10-15, probably William C.); 1 male (26-44, probably Stephen); 2 females (0-9, probably Flavilla and Lucinda); 2 females (10-15, probably Melvina & Polly); 1 female (26-44, probably wife Abigail); 2 persons noted as engaged in agriculture. Also listed in Homer were Daniel, Nathaniel and James Knapp.
• Newspaper Announcement, ?, 20 Aug 1820, A newspaper announcement of August 20, 1820: "Cortland races at Cortland Village on Tuesday, the 19th day of September -- all differences to be settled by the Judges: Truman Dowd, Charles W. Lynde, Stephen Knapp, and Roswell Randall.

• 1830 Census: 1830, Homer, Cortland County, New York, USA. 2868 Stephen is listed with the following household members: 1 male 5-10 (probably son James); 1 male 10-15 (Stephen D.); 1 male 50-60 (Stephen); 1 female 5-10 (probably Betsy Z.); 1 female 10-15 (probably Flavilla), 1 female 15-20 (probably Lucinda); and 1 female 40-50 (probably wife Abigail). Betsy, Melvina and Polly do not appear. Betsy may not have lived until adulthood. Melvina ran her own business, and Polly married - date unknown. James Knapp is listed close by.
• 1840 Census: 1840, Homer, Cortland County, New York, USA. 2869 Stephen Knapp is listed with the following household members: Males- 1 (15-20), 2 (20-30), 1 (30-40, 1 (60-70); Females- 4 (15-20), 12 (20-30), 1 (40-50). I believe the male household members are: Stephen, who would have been the 1 male between 60-70, James (1 male 15-20), Stephen D. (1 of the 2 mailes 20-30) - the second male in the age group is unknown, and William C., who would have been the 1 male 30-40. Abigail would be the female 40-50, Betsy is the only known daugher to fit the 15-20 age group; daughters Flavilla and Lucinda would fit the 20-30 group. Polly, who married, would have been about 32 - it is possible her husband represented the other unknown male (he does not show up on the census anywhere else). Daughters Betsy and Melvina would have been 35 or older by this time and would not fall into that age category. The writing on the census is quite clear, but 4 and 12 in the female columns seems like a mistake unless they were running a boarding house.

Date:1845 (dated by the mention of the death of Garradus Knapp)

Dear Nephew,Homer, February, 22
I received your letter and was very glad to hear that you are all [missing word]. It found us all in comfortable health. Our family and relations are comfortable as to health as far as we know. Garradus [Knapp, b. 4 Jan 1804, d. 23 Apr 1844] died a year ago last April and we have heard that George his brother is dead. Your Aunt Deborah and family are well. I think to go see Mr. Buck and Daniel Drake this week if possible and find all I can. I have wrote to your Uncle Lucas. I will do all I can. I have often heard your grandmother say that the writing concerning that property were left in the care of Uncle Joseph Drake and it may be possible if any of his children are living that some information may find with them. I think it may be that we may find something this week. If we do or not I will write and let you know if we should have need to send Annas [Annis?] Buck [Back]. Malvina and Decature are in Illinois and they can go there if it should be necessary. There was Uncle John and Samuel Drake moved to Pennsylvania. It may be that some information may be obtained there from something with theyr children. We wish you to write who commenced this suit and what were there prospects.

You will please to give our best respects to your Father and Mother and Brothers and Sisters. We have head that Mrs. Valentine had lost her eye site. We would like to hear if it is so or not. So no more at present.
Stephen Knapp
PS The snow is very deep with us. Wish you to write right back and let us know if there is any further news concerning the trial.

• Source?? "Some Reminiscences of Cortland by Hon. Horatio Ballard: Contemporaneously with the formation of this State, it had a military organization formed "The Militia". It continued until 1862, when it displaced and an organization adopted called 'The National Guard of the State of New York.'

"Members of the old militia are still living in every town of this county. Through the 'journeying years' they have carried fond memories of that period. The annual 'General Trainings' opened the way for the marked festival of the year.

"'The boom of cannon and the beat of drum.'

"The country embraced a brigade which was composed of three regiments and a batallion numbering about fifteen hundred men enrolled in the ranks.

"The regiment embracing the undivided towns of Homer, Preble and Scott was a noble one. It was composed of a company of cavalry, grenadiers, artillery, rifle and infantry. Military pride was then cultivated and upheld throughout the ranks of society. I hope there are some yet living who will remember the spendid 'troop of calvary' as it paraded on the 'green' in Homer, commanded by Joshua Ballard, and officered by the cherished names of David Coye, Isaac Rindge, Stephen Knapp, Henry DeVoe."

Events
• Stephen was probably named after a famous hero of the time - Stephen Decatur, Jr. Commodore Stephen Decatur, Jr (5 January 1779 – 22 March 1820) was an American naval officer notable for his heroism in the Barbary Wars and in the War of 1812. He was the youngest man to reach the rank of captain in the history of the United States Navy, and the first American celebrated as a national military hero who had not played a role in the American Revolution. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Decatur)
• Flora Tyler Knapp wrote this about Stephen: "At that time [1819] his parents were living in the house near the "upper bridge" or what is now called the Hasting's House. When Stephen D. was a young man he went West for about five years. When he returned he married Jane E. Bartlett. They had two children, William Cliff and a girl, Mary Ella. While living in Homer, Stephen D. was employed in the foundry on South Main Street, where Mr. John Bunn also worked. Stephen's son William tells of his father using a sledge hammer weighing 100 lbs. to break up old iron. He could rase this weight up over his head.

"Before his son was born, Stephen moved from town to a farm on the Scott Road--at the Brake Hill four corners. They occupied the small house on the lower side of the main road and here William was born on November 15, 1856. They stayed on here about five years and then went to the East side of Tully Valley, and later to the West side. Here they remained until William married in 1878.

"Following William's marriage the two families stayed together on various farms until the spring of 1884. That March they moved to the Cummings farm on the top of Schoolhouse Hill just south of Tully. Just prior to this Stephen D. had a shock and although he recovered in other ways, he lost the use of his hands. He was unable to do anything and the following year on May 18, 1885, he died. His wife, Jane, only survived him by one year, she having died in 1886. Both Stephen and his wife are buried in the family lot in Homer cemetery."

Notes
Death Notes:
Sometime between 1820 - 1830.
General:
"William Cliff Knapp related the following to Flora T. Knapp: Stephen D relates that soon after his marriage, Stephen and Abigail were planning to go out west with their son William, but William was taken sick and died very suddenly, so the plans for moving were abandoned." - Flora Tyler Knapp

No William Knapp is listed in the 1850 census for Cortland County - Ancestry.com. [August 12, 2005]

William would be 20 in 1830. There are no males in that date range listed in Stephen's household in 1830.

In the 1820 census, there are 2 male children in Stephen's household. One is 10-16, probably William C. The other is 10 or under, probably brother Stephen D., born in 1819. 16

• "Benjamin Knight, a native of Monson, Mass., first came to Homer in 1801, in the month of February, having probably made the journey on foot in ten days, and at an inclement season of the year. In January, 1802, he returned to Massachusetts, accomplishing the journey in twelve days. The next month he returned to Homer, again being twelve days on the road. He located on the southern part of the lot originally purchased by Judge Keep and subsequently again returned to Connecticut where, on the 11th day of September, 1803, he married Susan Goodell of Pomfret; she was a sister of the wife of Judge Keep and also of the wife of Darius Kinney. Thus the three sisters came from Connecticut and settled within the radius of a mile. On this farm Mr. Knight resided during the remainder of his life. He united with the Congregational Church in 1806 and died in 1843, at the age of 66 years." 33
